Salmon and an Update

This week's theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Salmon.  I first thought about the color salmon but I really did not know what that looked like!!!  HAHA.  So I then thought about the fish.  So I designed an inchie with 4 salmon-looking fish on it.  Then just before I started to bead it I decided to reverse one of the fish.  He is the one swimming upstream!


I love how this turned out.  I hope that you can see it.  All 3 colors are silver lined delicas.  I was not really sure about there being seaweed in the water near salmon but I needed something to offset the fish so there ya go! 

For those who read last weeks blog post and wondered about Kiki, she is good and no worse for the wear.  It took her 5 days to pass the needle, bead work and thread!  5 DAYS!  We were all so stressed out waiting.  Me and my kids were actually about to tear apart the couch to see if it went inside.  But then she took care of that.  Kiki saved the couch!  lol.

Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great work that the ladies there have done.  Have a blessed and creative (and stress free!) week!
